bomerBomb attacks targeting both Shi'ite Muslims and Sunnis killed at least 20 people in Iraq on Tuesday.

In Diyala, a car bomb targeted Shi'ites in a marketplace in the village of Anbakiya, killing five people in the third such attack of the past two months, police said.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack, but extremist Salafi groups including al Qaeda, which view Shi'ites as non-believers, have been regaining momentum in Iraq, galvanized by civil war in neighboring Syria.

Another car bomb targeted a Shi'ite tribal leader, who survived while three others were killed, and a blast in Hwaish village, also in Diyala province, claimed three more lives.

A roadside bomb killed five people in a coffee shop in a Sunni area of Latifiya, around 40 km (25 miles) from Baghdad, in a volatile area known as the "triangle of death", where 16 members of one Shi'ite family were slain last week.

Gunmen killed six people in a house in Yousufiya, south of Baghdad, where a Sunni family were preparing the body of a man for burial, police said.

Some 800 Iraqis were killed in acts of violence in August, according to the United Nations.

"A white car parked near a barber's shop inside Anbakiya market exploded. I got shrapnel in my head and my family took me to Baquba hospital," said 24-year-old college student Ali Kadhim.
